~IL Cantuccio Restaurant ~

'An Authentic Taste of Italy'

'Everybody in Italy' has a grandmother whose cuisine they remember fondly. It is not only nostalgia, Italian grandmothers were artists in the kitchen.

Our food is authentic Italian cuisine, with an added personal touch. That personal touch is always an improvement, never a distraction. We use only the freshest ingredients to build flavours, the true art of Italian cooking.

'Simple and full of flavour..'

We prepare perfect Pasta, Risotto, Baby Veal, Seafood, Meat and Chicken dishes served with seasonal vegetables to compliment the flavour of great Italian food.
The sort of food your mother would cook. And as everybody knows home cooked is often better than overworked, overly complicated restaurant food.

We proudly serve a number of delicious and Generous Italian specialities that capture the rich, robust flavours of Italy and are an example of our commitment in bringing the authentic tastes of Italy for you to enjoy.

Whether your occasion is intimo or di festa large or small, we welcome you to experience fine Italian dining at its best.
We welcome you to iL Cantuccio.

Or,as we Italians say ~ Mangi! Bevi! Ti diverti!
Eat! Drink! Enjoy yourself!

'Our saying' ~ If you want to see artwork you go to an art gallery but if you want to eat well then you eat at IL Cantuccio' ~
We are not about fashion but about providing warmth & hospitality in the true Italian way.
